Competition Summer Dance Class Requirements
Competitive dancers must dance year-round to build their technique and strength. Summer dance is a great time for your dancer to work on their skills and grow in artistry and confidence. East Coast Dance Company requires your child to take summer dance classes if auditioning for our competitive team. Dancers new to team must pass a mandatory ballet evaluation. Dancers new to team ages 9+ must have at least one year of ballet (the previous year) to be eligible to audition. All dancers must be present at the competition team auditions and the following week during their intensive to be on the team.

After audition placement, the competition team is required to attend a 5-day dance intensive specifically designed for their level and ability. These intensives will include technique and flexibility training as well as competition choreography. Each intensive will focus on competition team bonding to welcome each team member to our competitive ensemble!
